A New Way Forward
In response to the pandemic and social distancing guidelines, ICAA has pivoted quickly to a virtual format for networking and educational programming in place of the traditional in-person Summer Conference. Last week, three round tables were held on the topics of major gifts strategies, Homecoming and reunion planning, annual fund by phone and advancement services. We were happy to welcome 87 participants from 30 member institutions!
It was great to see so many faces, both new and familiar, on the calls. While we can’t be in the same room, we can be on the same screen! Stay tuned for details on upcoming educational programming.
We wish all our members a happy, healthy summer.
